  • How long's your sitting-in-a-blind license good for?

    Same here and I "had" to take yesterday and today off too since the kids were off school. Coupled with my off Friday last week (9x80 schedule) I get 17 days of straight for the price of two.

    I won't miss it one bit, but getting up at 4:30 on the morning of the 5th is going to be a real ****.

    Jan 18. I'll probably only get out once, though.

    Is there holiday special pricing for the glory hole?
  • Shawn C.Shawn C. Senior Member Posts: 6,372 Senior Member
    I take off so much time in the summer for fishing vacations that I usually don't have the luxury of taking off too much time for the holidays. I have 6 days off starting tomorrow and then a long weekend over New Years.
    The President decreed that 26 Dec was a paid holiday for federal employees so that helped save some leave. I think he should have just given the 26th to registered Democrats, but that's me.
    Happy Holidays/Merry Christmas!

    I'm lucky in that I don't have to use a day of vacation. The University is closed.

    The long days off at Christmas started a couple years ago because they haven't given raises in quite some time.

    Are you paid in that time?

And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    I have to work next week... Except I am going to be the only one in the office.

    So you are going to be working without pants?

    after working pretty much every day since sometime in early October, I only have 5 shoots scheduled between now and Jan 1, including one tonight. So it won't exactly be time off, but certainly some time to fit in non-work related stuff.

    fortunately, the ground is still not frozen, so maybe I can FINALLY plant my daffodils.

    You have to love the 9-80 schedule. I wanted to try a 4-10 but I would be broke from all the camping trips.

    Yep, having every other Friday or Monday off is sweet. I'm off every other Monday. I'm already at work, so what's another hour matter? And yes, if I worked 4/10's the wheels would fall off my car from all of the fishing trips.

    I know, right? Freakin' socialists. All y'all ought to move to Denmark.
  • If it wasn't for the language, I'd think we were in France.

    Everybody get all of August off too?
  • jbillyjbilly Senior Member Posts: 5,115 Senior Member
    My boss completely hates the 9x80 schedule. He'd much rather us be on a regular 8x5 and then we'd all end up being there more than 8 hours per day anyway because of the work load. With this schedule many people have just said f it and take the off Friday off, but many of us don't. If I had to guess I'd say it is maybe a 60-40 split of off-on.

    Unfortunately not. We do get summer hours though - 8:00-4:00 with our customary hour lunch break.

    I am envious.

    In my current job I am on duty 24 hrs a day 7 days a week, working hard to stay alive until midnight so to draw another day's pay.
